Here’s the tempo tune who won the Party Monarch title – “Roll it” by Soka Kartel aka Mikey & Blood.

The latest compilation album by Blood & Soka Kartel is released by Faluma.

Hypa4000 – Show me yur wukkup

This Vincy Soca track (meaning coming out of St. Vincent) adapting the Dominican Bouyon sound – sounding fresh!

Benz aka Mr Gwada – Gwada

Bouyon artist from Dominica will internationally release the album “Mizik a nou” on the Soca label Faluma this Sept. The tune “Gwada” is taken off the album and refers to the fact that young Dominicans leave the country for the neighbour island Guadeloupe to earn some €uros.

Pumpa – Honk ya horn

This one’s coming from St. Crux in the VIs by the former Xtaushun Band singer Pumpa. Skip the horrible intro, the tune starts at 1:12. VI Soca at it’s best!

Nice Ragga Soca tune by Bomani out of St. Vincent.
